Reported G40 presidential aspirant and former minister Savior Kasukuwere has said Zimbabweans need to come together and "confront the elephant in the room" in solving the economic and political challenges in the country.

It is reported that a group of exiled former Zanu-PF members that grouped under G40 are pushing for Kasukuwere to take over from President Emmerson Mnangagwa as head of Zanu-PF and President of the country.

Social media campaigns have been launched with the hash tag "UTysonWabantu" to drum up support for Kasukuwere who along with Professor Jonathan Moyo, Patrick Zhuwawo and other fled the country when the army deposed former President Robert Mugabe in a coup in 2017.

Kasukuwere said Zimbabwe cannot go on conducting politics of hatred.

"It is not hatred of each other that will take our country out of this challenge, but a need to collectively confront the elephant in the room. The pain in our society is deep and sharp. Let's accept our failings and correct our steps. It's the economy and politics," said Kasukuwere.

Mnangagwa's spokesperson George Charamba claimed recently that Kasukuwere tried to hold meetings with senior members of the ANC in South Africa to try and convince them to support his bid but the ANC would not lend him an ear.
